Introducing Forward - a program of events in partnership with Hatch Enterprise and Westminster Foundation, supporting young Londoners in Westminster and Southwark to succeed in the digital and creative sector. The sessions combines high-impact skills training, industry networking and personal development, and is offered free of charge to fresh, driven talent.
What you'll gain:
Industry led training in digital skills, networking, preparing for entry-level jobs, apprenticeships and paid internships
Portfolio development opportunities through practical tasks, live briefs, team working and industry mentoring
Access to employers with 1-1 support into employment
Who's it for:

We particularly welcome individuals who are underrepresented in industry including women, people from black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds, people living with disabilities and people from low socio-economic backgrounds
“I’m really excited about the opportunities Forward offers young people in Westminster. It’s all about boosting knowledge and long-term employability skills in practical, real-life scenarios. This program is designed to motivate participants and properly harness the potential that I know all young people have. Good luck to everyone taking part!”
